NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Judy Hadley, Regulated Industries, talked about the problem of alcohol vaporizer devices. The ordinance would prohibit the use of these devices within the city limits. The company that builds the device has informed city staff that the device cannot be bought by an individual for self or home use. It can only be purchased commercially. There is a fear that the device may end up in the hands of minors. Councilwoman Becky Nace stated that there was a need to look at the issue of purchasing the device within the City. The city needs to pursue the right to ban the device entirely. The city needs to explore the legality of home use. Councilwoman Deb Hermann suggested having the law department consult with the police department and other law enforcement agencies to come up with some alternative language that would protect the city and its citizens from the device usage. Judy Hadley stated that the ordinance also called for changing the catering permit.
